During a temporary cease fire two friends of different caste and social creed (Nepali and Rokaya) travel together from their village in Northern Nepal to find a hen they raised. The young actors are charming and watchable and although extended dream sequences slow down an already weighty narrative, it's a moving portrait of the ravages of war.
